his inauguration speech, president obama laid out his plan for immigration reform. the image of a campaign speech, the president went to north dakota where the hispanic population is 20%. >> the good news is for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. this moment it looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon. that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debating this for a long time. the principles are pretty straight forward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continue k to strengthening security at our borders. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear that the
sense, comprehensive immigration reform. the time has come. now is the time. >> president obama went to a las vegas high school today to outline his own immigration reform plan. the cheers from the crowd tell you a lot. there are places in this country where the threat of deportation hangs over the heads of many people. >> the good news is that for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. members of both parties in both chambers are actively working on a solution. >> so here we have the president praising the framework unveiled by eight democratic and republican senators. president obama is urging using his bully pulpit to make sure there is an urgency to get real reform done. >> the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. and if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> the details of the president's own plan for citizenship are supported by mainstream america. >> we have to lay out a path, a process that inc
republicans working on immigration reform need president obama's blessing to rally support in the latino community. the flip side of that coin from the republican perspective if president obama puts his name on the bill then republicans will be wealeery of it. >> see what happens. time now to take a look at who is talking. the two secretaries of state sitting down with fox news. former sec ry of state colon powell talking with bill o'reilly. >> you will hear from him a little later in the show but first the wup on one interview hillary clinton. >> there are questions about why american citizens were in such a dangerous place in the first place. secretary clinton responding to just that. >> let me explain why we are there. this is the part of the libyan revolution. we knew they were dangerous people in and around benghazi. we also knew there were a lot of lose weapons. part of what we were doing there was trying to get leads on recovering those weapons. and we knew there was smuggling radios that would go into sinai threaten israel. there are other reasons why we were there not just the s
afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includes strengthening security holding businesses accountable and higher undocumented workers including the system that does a better job of reflecting the values of the united states and in essence, encouraging folks to stay here who have gone to school her, who have gone to college here and raised here and of course, that big one, and the path to citizenship. this is one of the most controversial issues. of course, a lot of republicans don't like this idea of creating a path to citizenship. president obama has worked to get that done. the big question is how can can the white house and members of congress work together to
. president obama is urging using his bully pulpit to make sure there is an urgency to get real reform done. >> the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. and if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> the details of the president's own plan for citizenship are supported by mainstream america. >> we have to lay out a path, a process that includes passing a background check, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning english, and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that's only fair. >> and i'll have commentary on that in a moment. i'm not all on board with it. it sounds good, but the path to earn citizenship has a lot of supporters in congress. in fact, it's the same path outlined by the group of senators. president obama's plan has a few more specifics. the path to citizenship is not contingent on meeting security triggers like additional border security and unmanned drones. it calls for improvements to immigration co

his ideas for reform of the immigration system. >> president obama took air force one out to nevada yesterday for the first trip of his second term to talk immigration reform. in a big high school auditorium filled with people chanting to "yes, it's possible." president obama essentially said he's glad a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators has come together to put the ideas they share into an immigration reform bill that president obama didn't exactly endorse the bill because it hasn't actually been written yet. something the president did say, though, is that a top priority needs to be giving illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> the president also said that citizens shouldn't have to wait years for their families to join them here in the states, and that is where the differences between the pre
on immigration. obama sort of raising them just a little bit by saying okay, we can do immigration reform and we'll include the lgbt community into it. now what are they going to do? how are republicans going to handle that? >> it is details they'll have to work out. this gang of eight -- we know that republicans did not want to include the lgbt component to it. it is going to be -- there's going to be parts both sides don't like. they're going to have to work it out. hopefully you're going to see the lgbt amendment stay in it. with doma, of course, potentially being struck down by the supreme court, this is an issue that may resolve itself. >> bill: think progress is also reporting that there is a republican congressman mo brooks from alabama who has offered up a constitutional amendment which says that if the president fails to balance the budget he will be -- he or she will be impeached. >> yes get out. of course, the ryan budget didn't balance for 30 years. he's going to unveil, more radical budget in ten years. so he can be president i guess. yeah, i mean look, republicans are going to cont
obama turning upped pressure on congress over immigration reform. during a speech yesterday, he told the crowd the time is now. and he said if congress doesn't act in a timely fashion, he will put up his own legislation for a vote. brianna keilar explains what's different about the president's plan. >> let me start off by thanking everybody at del sol high school for hosting us. >> reporter: they chose this nevada high school with the majority latino student body to roll out the details of what mr. obama calls the number one legislative priority of his second term. >> the time has come for comprehensive immigration reform. >> reporter: just 24 hours after a bipartisan group of senators unveiled their outline of imgragts reform bill, the president delivered a warning. >> if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will accepted up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> reporter: mr. obama's plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the u.s., requiring applicants undergo bac
ahead, president obama called to action. we're going to take a closer look at immigration reform. and the hurdles it faces moving forward. >> riding a record wave. we'll show you picture s of the 10 story wall of water and the man brave enough to surf it. >> we're going to get the latest weather and traffic from tucker and julie coming up next. 7:26. we'll be right back.  >>> welcome back. a surfer in portugal has ridden a giant mountain of water to brave new heights. >> check this out. the tiny speck, i don't know if you can see it is actually hawaiian surfing legend. he's hanging 10 on a wave off the coast of portugal. on monday this happened. the wave was at least 100 feet high which would break his previous record by about 10 feet. is that him down there on the right? barely see him. >> there are a couple storms out at sea producing massive waves. that's incredible. >> from the water to the sky. right now the smog in parts of china, particularly beijing is so bad, authorities have had to ground planes and shut down highways. the u.s. embassy ca
and common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority and it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now have before us over the finish line poll after poll shows americans, democrats, republicans , independents support our solution to our broken emigration system. bipartisan support building in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this problem, there is no reason we should not get this done as soon as possible. the american people to solution. our economy requires a solution, and families across america are praying for solutions. that is the literal truth. >> thank you, senator reid. since i came to the senate 16 years ago and have been working of the immigration issue. i have never felt more positive about the prospects of real immigration reform and i do today. just this week in the last several days, the significant things that have occurred right here in this room, a bipartisan group of senators, a colleague, as well as senator menendez, the democratic side, mccain and gramm and rubio, the republican sid
reform as president obama heads to las vegas to talk about the issue. before leaving, the president about itsestions foreign policy record alongside his secretary of state hillary clinton. that's where we begin this morning with you. we want to hear your thoughts on the role of the u.s. on the world stage. give us a call this morning on the democratic line, the republican line, and the independent. 585-u're outside the u.s., 3883. you can reach us on facebook or twitter or e-mail. good monday morning to you. we want to start with the interview with president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton from last night that appeared on "60 minutes." here's how it played in a couple papers from around the country. here's the new york times headline -- and the culpeper star has -- i want to read you from the story that was in the hill newspaper this morning, the congressional newspaper here in washington. what we want to do now is take you to a clip from last night of that interview. here is president obama. [video clip] >> we helped to put together and lay the groundwork for liberating liby
ban, limits on high capacity magazine clips, and universal background checks. >>> president obama says now is the time to pass immigration reform. during a campaign style speech in las vegas, the president praised a bipartisan agreement between a group of eight senators. the agreement would lead to an eventual citizenship for roughly eight million undocumented immigrants in the u.s. it also strengthens border security and allows for better guest worker programs. >>> and the senate has confirmed massachusetts senator john kerry to be next secretary of state. kerry will replace hillary clinton who is steps down after four years. massachusetts will hold a special election to replace kerry. >>> soon you'll have a chance to enjoy several pieces of chinese history. the new exhibit called style in silk, tradition and innovation in chinese fashion begins this friday, february 1 and runs through april 14 so you have plenty of time to get out there. the exhibit is free, open to the public. if people are not familiar with the meridian international center, what is it and why are you doing the exh
to "hardball." that was president obama in las vegas yesterday where he laid out his vision for immigration reform. the president's approach is very similar to what a bipartisan group of eight senators called for earlier this week. now the question is can something get done? will republicans in the house be willing to vote yes on a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally? that could be a hard sell. many republicans say president obama is all too happy to let the issue fester and watch as their party continues to struggle with hispanic voters. however, politico's mike allen says that doesn't pass the political smell test. quote kwb this is one of the few political mysteries that has an unambiguously correct answer. top demes tell us if president obama is going to have a big legacy accomplishment this term, it has to be immigration. so he's making an historic test of whether the campaign machinery can translate to governing. joining us is howard fineman and nia-malika henderson. nia-malika, let me begin with you. what's your ans
was saying immigration reform would mean self-deportation, just 2 1/2 months ago. so who's to be believed? >> i think the birth dapresiden try, and unfortunately obama care came in the way. the republican electorate woke up the day of the election and say, we do have a latino problem. and it's not a surprise that lindsey graham is part of the negotiations. his state is changing. he received a new congressional seat back in 2010 because of the growth in latino vote. if you start looking at where there's a huge population boom, in the next phase of the population boom for the next election, it's all in the south. so it's in their best interests for the republican party to ensure that they're seen out in front. because otherwise, they're going to have a very tough battle moving on, to win not just the senate, but also the white house. >> so you talk about the south. let's talk about kentucky. we get this from mitch mcconnell and his statement on this. take a listen, "when the president addresses this issue today, i hope he will take a bipartisan approach, rather than delivering another bipar
. if that means blocking obama's agenda or passing our reforms and have obama explain why he is opposed to them. we should articulate our goals and policy programmings and explain them. >> tom cotton of arkansas. [applause] >> good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. i'm the director of the at the heritage society. welcome to our conversation about life. it is strategically timed on this 40th anniversary on the infamous roe v. wade decision. hundreds of thousands of people gathered on the mall to march for life. thank you for standing for life. a generation and a half have grown up in the shadow of roe. we are thankful for those pro life leaders who have cast life into the darkness created by the ethic of roe. today, we are joined we -- by foreof the lights. chuck donovon is the president of the institute. chuck has served the pro life cause at the national right to life committee in the reagan administration at the family research council and most recently with the at the hear taj -- heritage center. he serves in the family life, represent life office. working on public policy issue. we was a pro
vision for comprehensive immigration reform. the president is expected to embrace the blueprint unveiled by the bipartisan immigration ink. just yesterday, this was a move designed to get the jump on the president's big speech. however, today, president obama will also reportedly call for a more progressive approach for dealing with the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants. >> there will be some differences between ourselves and the president, but i think we could iron out any of those. >> i think while he will show this is his idea with where we should be, he will work with us to produce a good, strong, bipartisan bill. we cannot pass this bill if either democrats are opposed or republicans are opposed. >> so where does this discussion really fork between 1600 pennsylvania avenue and capitol hill? sticking point number one, the president favors a quicker path to citizenship, and not one tied to enforcement at america's borders. >> before we can move towards a path for green cards, because citizenship comes after that. it's a path to green cards. before we move to a path towards green
-senator barack obama who gutted the guest worker provision out of that immigration reform and effectively killed it off. so it's great that now durbin is on board along with a number of republicans. the big question is, though, later today we're going to hear from the president. is the president really serious about immigration reform? after all, marco rubio has been out there, but has the white house reached out to him so far? absolutely not. >>gretchen: here's the plan they're talking about, this gang of eight. register and pass a background check. you would be required to do that if you're illegal. pay a fine and back taxes. earn probationary legal status. learn english. continue to pay taxes. show work history and then get a green card and then apply for citizenship. effectively you would go to the back of the line. so this is a bipartisan effort. remember, some of these commissions have come together in the past, in the last four years, specifically about the debt and the president hasn't necessarily taken on the plan that they have come up with. so this will be really important to see if i
with this, the reckoning. put up or shut up, d day. president obama through down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fiks the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of worgers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past. will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? that could be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm holder than you, i have been through simpson mazoly. we were -- >> i love it's getting a come back. >> we've passed bills that said it's got teeth and it's got amnesty for people who have been here to while. is this going to work
, president obama said one of his agendas for his second term is immigration reform. >> our journey is not complete until we bright young students and engineers are listed in our workforce rather than expeled from our country. >> reporter: but those who oppose his policy say current immigration laws need to be enforced and border security improved. only then, they say, can such changes be considered. the president says he doesn't think these laws are enforceable. how on earth will congress be expected to pass a package when no guarantees can be made to the general public that the laws will be respected? >>raphael romo joins us live. what are their other options? >> the dream act that went to the senate in 2010 and failed. and that's what they've been waiting for. we're talking today about immigration proposals. this is a proposal these young kids have been waiting for since 2005. essentially, what it does or what it would do is kids who were brought to this country by their parents illegally and have never known any other country and speak more english than anything else, they would
. john mccain said on sunday we have to do something about the latino vote. president obama won 71% in the election a few months ago. he said today, the president is to unveil his own plan for immigration reform and will do that in las vegas. in nevada, a state where hispanicses makes.27% of the population, comes a day after a bipartisan group of eight senators reached a compromise how to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. included in that bill, a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers currently in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> the what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes and e
to overhaul immigration laws in the united states. president obama is on his first post inauguration trip in nevada. we will carry the remarks this afternoon. how should the laws on immigration reform be changed or enforced? here are the numbers to call. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for independents, 202-585-3882. you can also find us online, send us a tweet by writing to twitter.com/c-spanwj, or share your comments with us on facebook by searching for c- span. you can also e mail us, journal@c-span.org. here is the headline from "the washington post," this morning -- "senators outline immigration plan." host: let's take a listen to some of that press conference from yesterday afternoon. senator chuck schumer opened things up. here is what he had to say about the details so far. [video clip] >> americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration and support legal immigration. to this end, we have four basic pillars. tough but fair passed to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the united states. second, reforming the legal immigration system to better recog
. >>> to hour headlines, presiden obama has mobilized a full-on media blitz to push for his vision of comprehensive immigration reform. yesterday the president went to nevada where the hispanic population is 20% to make his case for a bipartisan plan. >> the good news is, for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. at this moment, it looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon. and that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we've been debating this a very long time. >> the president's speech stopped short of backing a plan outlined the day before by a bipartisan gang of eight, group of senators. the group which includes republican senator marco rubio has proposed a pathway to citizenship under the condition that more is done to secure the nation's borders. senator rubio yesterday did his best to sell conservative talk radio host rush limbaugh to the idea. >> border security, we need workplace enforcement, a visa trackin
support. it appears congress is going to pass significant immigration reform and that reform looks like it will fall much of what president obama wants. if that goes through, that is perfectly constitutional. you get the government you vote for, that you deserve and this is the government you have. if you oppose the republicans in the senate for reaching this agreement, your recourse is to replace those members. host: going back to your comments about the president paused use of drones and how he fights the war on terror -- guest: every president has said he is facing problems that his predecessors did not have to face and that is why he is asking for more power. three people have to be highly skeptical of that. drones an important technology. they are not so vastly different nor is the war on terror so vastly different as to excuse the creation of an imperial presidency. this president, at least his administration, has said they will reserve the right to do drone strikes in countries that are posed to them. the american people dismiss the concerns are countries that raise his objection
immigration reform. there's going to be a pretty big sticking point on what you do with the 11 million who are already here illegally. president obama's laid out a path to citizenship where they'd pay fines and back taxes, et cetera. a lot of republicans might object to that. but if i could i'd like to go back to something chris said about these steep spending cuts. i've spoken to a lot of people who really are familiar with the nuts and bolts of the budget and how actual lit money gets spent. they say that with the caps that are in place right now, with inflation cutting into those and with population growth, the only way you can really cut spending is p by doing things like firing people at the fbi. because veteran spending is going to increase automatically. president obama wants to spend more on education. that's tough. so these cuts go into effect, but they might find very quickly that it's very difficult to actually implement them. >> last thing here to you, chris, we're hearing about a couple of senators not going to be -- not going to seek re-election. talking about harkin, saxby c
the president, "we can't wait." entitlement reform can't wait. even the trustees of social security and medicare have stated that the entitlements are unsustainable and they urge quick action. and those trustees include senior officials in the obama administration who could hardly be viewed as deficit hawks. mr. president, these are the problems our nation faces. our fiscal and economic well-being literally hang in the balance of these debates. and if the senate is going to be up to the challenge of fixing these problems, we're going to have to start doing things differently. we shouldn't wait until the nation's finances reach another -- yet another cliff sometime this summer before we start talking again and addressing our unsustainable fiscal situation. that's not what the american people want to see and that's not the direct we should be going. i believe my colleague from montana feels the same way, that we can start the talks now in committees and do the things that we should in committee and report bills to the floor that even if we can't support them, at least they'll be done the right way
